Abstract

This paper proposes a novel control method for stable object grasping and orientation control using a dual-arm manipulator with multi-fingered hands. The control signal of the proposed method is simple but it can easily achieve stable grasping without external sensors and an orientation control of a grasped object. Firstly, holonomic constraints between a dual-arm manipulator with multi-fingered hands and the object surfaces are formulated, and the stability of the system is discussed through its convergence analysis. Next, it is shown that the relationship between a final orientation of an object and initial contact positions of finger tips becomes quasi-linear. Using this quasi-linear relationship, an orientation control method utilizing regrasping of the object is derived. It is verified that the proposed method enables to perform simple orientation control of the object without real-time external sensing through numerical simulations.
